The Forest Edge: Design and Ecology
February 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The forest edge plays a significant role in ecological landscapes, both for wildlife habitat and landscape design aesthetics. In this webinar, Andy Brand and Irene Barber will discuss how and what to use to establish attractive forest edges. This “edge” concept can be very useful in urban landscapes, attracting and hosting birds and pollinators year-round. Talking points include selecting species for a variety of landscape conditions, hospitable plants for bird species, woody plants for year-round appeal, and what plants grow well together.
In partnership with the Maine Landscape and Nursery Association, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens presents the Green Spotlight Series, featuring local and national green industry researchers, instructors, and field professionals discussing topics valuable to peer professionals. The variety of topics on offer are geared towards a diverse range of landscape-related professionals, from nursery and flower farmers to arborists, landscapers, gardeners, and landscape designers/architects. MELNA members are eligible for the CMBG member price and will earn recertification credits; several sessions will count toward the State of Maine’s pesticide license recertification.
